confirmed the fbi has a team on the ground in libya to identify suspects, gather evidence and assess whether a prosecution is possible. as fox news was first to report the targeted killing of ambassador coordinated and may be linked to a group called lifg or the libyan fighting islamic group. it was banned by the former dictator muammar qaddafi because of its support for al qaeda. the head of the house intelligence committee is one of few members of congress fully briefed on the attacks and the investigation. >> even though we can't say for sure this was an al qaeda event yet it certainly fits the profile, it fits the signature, the precision, the way that they carried out this particular attack, certainly would make it likely that it is an al qaeda affiliated organization. >> reporter: this morning the libyan foreign ministry saying that they believe a group called ansar al sharia was involved. they support the extremist goal of imposing strict sharia law in that country. jenna: ongoinging investigation as we learn more about libya. what about cairo? what are we learning about the investiga
the f.b.i. over who had to cool their heels for days before they could even get in there, and i don't know if they are in benghazi yet. but, you know, i heard yesterday about this journal that was found by -- of the ambassador, three days after the attack by a journalist walking through the compound. this is just lew ludicrous. on the face of it the way they are handling this is so incompetent, and treating it again like it's a "law & order" issue, they've sent the f.b.i. to investigate, like when they find out what is wrong are they going to try to arrest somebody in libya? bill: we'll be in touch with your office and find out what you find out. thank you for your time. i want to bring in senior brooks, a senior fellow for national security affairs. peter what is going on here. >> i have the same concerns that the chairman has, he just expressed, and he's probably better informed than i am. we see all of these loose treads on this narrative coming out of the white house. my sense at this point because of those new pieces of information that don't all fit together that they are doin
from qaddafi and i want to know who did this and i want them turned over to our fbi. it is inexcusable. in our country if an embassy was attacked we would send thousands of troops there immediately. there were warnings in egypt and they said the mob is coming. they didn't send soldiers they just said the mob is coming, get ready. it is inexcusable. >> you have also expressed doing the same with usa to pakistan if they end up arresting or worse this doctor who helped identify the whereabouts of osama bin laden which we ultimately succeeded in gunning him down. so is there something going on in the entire region that we should just go slow on pouring money good moon after bad here? >> we had something called the arab spring. i am not sure if we are better or worse off. democracy in the middle east is sometimes bringing people into power who really don't like america. we have given billions upon billions of dollars to these countries and my question is if you want to be an ally of america act like it. if you are not going to act like an ally of ours you are going to disparage us and kill
. medicare, $11 billion in cuts projected. food stamps, half a billion dollars. fbi salaries, a quarter billion dollars of cuts. national parks, 218 million and the one that really stands out. embassy security projected to be cut by $129 million when the whole world has seen how much we need to beef up security. >> this is clear where the left hand is not talking to the right hand. as jon huntsman just said, we need more on that. >> of course on both sides, whether the white house and congress are saying look how damaging these meat cleaver cuts are. this is not the way anyone wants to go about this, but this is what they've been handed. >> what has been the gop reaction? >> it's been fascinating. the gop is trying to pass the buck. john boehner put out a statement today, said this report confirms that the president's sequester, the president's sequester, is a serious threat to our national security and must be replaced. so you see what's going on there. congress, speaker, want to have nothing to do with it, trying to get president obama to own the sequester when this was always going t
to join in the hunt for them. the fbi is also investigating. as we said at the top of the program, american warships armed with cruise missiles have begun steaming closer to libya. a marine unit is headed to tripoli to protect the embassy there and other forces may be called to beef up protection globally. >> we're working with the government of libya to secure our diplomats. i have directed my administration to increase our security at diplomatic posts around the world, and make no mistake, we will work with the libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people. >> well, later today after that speech, on the cbs evening news, president obama also had sharp words for mitt romney, who's come under fire from democrats and some republicans for his statements lashing out at the obama administration's response to the attacks in benghazi and cairo. statements that whatever you believe about american foreign policy are simply not factual. we'll get to the battle over that in a moment. first we do want to focus on the attacks themselves, what happened last night an
bush, president clinton, the cia, the fbi, the department of justice. it was a much more context report. if anything, he's said in his reporting, and they never had the heart of what he says, which is other pdbs gave credence to the fact that this was an attack that could have been stopped. >> in my reading 06 the 9/11 report, it says numerous actions were taken overseas and domestic agencies didn't know what to do. >> that's true, because there wasn't the same kind -- i want to address a number of things that ari just said. i mean, number one, i want to point out his first approach was attack the messenger. number two, i am quoting from presidential daily briefs. ari is not coming in here and saying oh, i have other information. i don't know what he's saying. is he saying i'm just lying and making them up? ari, this is what it says. >> i'm reading from the 9/11 commission. >> i allowed you to speak, would you give me the same benefit? i'm angry at ari today, because the first thing he did was send out a tweet, calling me a 9/11 truther. meaning one of those people who says that george

. what's the latest information? >> jake, it's important to know that there's an fbi investigation that has begun and it will take some time to be completed. that will tell us with certainly what transpired. our current assessment, is that fact what began as was a spontaneous not a premeditated response to what had transpired in cairo, there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this video that was disseminated. we believe that folks in benghazi, a small number of people came to the consulate to replicate this sort of challenge that was posed in cairo and then as that unfolded, it seems as hijacked, let's us say, by some individual clusters of extremists that came with heavier weapons, weapons as you know, in the wake of the revolution in libya are quite common and accessible. then it evolved from there. we'll get to see exactly what the investigation finally confirms. but that's the best information that we have at present. >> why was there such a security breakdown in benghazi? >> first of all, we had substantial presence with our -- >> not substantial enough -
will go unpunished. >> reporter: but in libya, the fbi is just starting an investigation. besides the four murders, and the riots faced by president obama, there's the bloody rebellion in syria, and new pressure on the u.s. from israel to get tougher on iran over nuclear weapons. republicans are implying president obama is wavering. >> this is a moment for americans to show our closest allies in the middle east that we stand with them unequivocally -- unequivocally -- no mixed signals. >> reporter: the middle east suddenly a factor in the race for the white house. prior to the current crisis, the nbc news "wall street journal" poll showed president obama with a significant advantage over mitt romney. in terms of what voters thought their competence was on foreign policy and national security. i'm steve handelsman, news4. >>> in our decision 2012, coverage tonight, both campaigns paused to remember the lives lost in libya. mitt romney and first lady michelle obama, they made campaign stops in the battleground state of virginia today. romney in fairfax, the first lady two stops in richmond a

. martha: could be. how does all this impact the fbi investigation going on there into the death of ambassador stevens and three other americans? >> reporter: martha, the word we're getting on the ground from benghazi it is calm. authorities are more in control. that is a good thing. the word also been getting on the ground here that the fb i-team sent to this country to investigate the crime has been hampered, maybe even blocked from the benghazi situation and the crime scene there. so that could help. overall, frankly also the public is going after the very militant groups that a lot of people suspect had a real hand in the killing of ambassador stevens and the other americans. that might be a good thing. as for the libyan authorities we're not exactly sure how fast that investigation is going forward. we met with one official today. he claims to me that they have 25 suspects in custody. but frankly in the past week or so we have heard one number, number two, number three numbers for arrests and suspects. one other concern about the crackdown, martha, the militants are being fo
to the state department that there were increasing security concerns in benghazi? the fbi says it is too dangerous to be in benghazi, which is why none of them are there now. is that because the situation has worsened, or was it always too dangerous? >> as we determine the details of what took place there and how that attack took place, it became clear that there were terrorists who had planned that attack. that is when i came to that conclusion. as to who was involved, what specific groups were involved, i think the investigation that is ongoing hopefully will determine that. >> about a day after? >> it took a while to get some feedback as to what exactly happened at that location. >> there was a threat intelligence reporting back -- eight to read -- there was a thread of intelligence reporting that groups were seeking to coalesce, but there was not anything specific, and certainly not anything specific to the consulate that i am aware of. as far as the risks of the fbi reported, you really would have to ask them why they made that determination. >> did you make the state department awa
took place in our office about four weeks ago, which the fbi is continuing to investigate as an act of domestic terrorism. i would like to mention the investigating agencies and professional and -- professional and very helpful. i am not sure the gravity of what happened or almost happened on august 15 was fully captured in the reporting immediately following the event. more importantly, i think this is a moment for all of us to understand the responsibility we have as we advocate for causes to which we are all committed. when the shooter entered our building at approximately 10:45 a.m., he placed his backpack down in front of the security desk. leo was temporarily manning that desk. leo thought to assist him, and the assailants reached into his backpack and pulled out a 9 millimeter pistol. in the ensuing few seconds, three rounds were fired. as the fbi has reconstructed it, the first bullet, which struck the elevator control panel in the lobby, was just a few inches above leo's head as he ducked. uck, e not remembered to deat he would have been struck right in the head. the second
workers have been ordered to leave the country this morning, as the fbi and other agencies try to figure out who carried out the malicious attack that killed ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. >> i want to assure you, we will bring their killers to justice. >> reporter: the attack was complex and preplanned. likely, for the anniversary of september 11th. it was around 10:00 at night in libya. 20 heavily armed attackers began firing at the libyan security guards protecting the american consulate, before setting the main building ablaze. inside, ambassador stevens and several others were trapped between the flames and the gunfire. stevens became separated from the others by the heavy, black smoke, while trying to exit the building. it was nearly a five-hour gun battle. additional security eventually regained some control, while employees escaped. but the buildings are now abandoned. it was also nearly 12 hours before ambassador stevens' body was returned by local libyans, who had carried him to a hospital in an effort to save him. a contingent of some 50 u.s. marines is no
this thing back under control. megyn: there was an fbi briefing this morning where the homeland security department warned that the united states could be attacked in the wake of all this dread what can you tell us about that? remapped i think it is far too early to tell. i don't think we have anything concrete. there is going to be violence in the united states, we don't have any proof. it's the logical caution, knowing how certain groups are trying to fan these flames and cause trouble for us and our allies overseas. megyn: mr. chairman, thank you so much for your time. we appreciate it. i want to let all of our viewers know that the chairman will be on fox news sunday. this sunday with chris wallace. he will give chairman wallace roger is rogers the time he deserves for an interview. ben bernanke's plan to fix the economy and skeptics. we will have that just ahead. plus, the shadow of the iranian hostage crisis looming over the turmoil in the islamic world. former president jimmy carter saying that handling should be an example for president obama to follow. we will talk to him about
the ambassador, but three other people. how do we get in there and do that? >> we get if there through fbi, counter terrorism teams, intelligence liaison teams, all of the liaison with the security personnel. but these destroyers are indicators we're prepared to take action. >> okay. let's move on now. i want to talk to you about this as we see the region there. a different subject. we now have the two aircraft carriers there near the persian gulf. we have the eisenhower, the enterprise. so should president barack obama give the order to strike iranian nuclear targets, these assets are there and can be quickly moved. >> they can. and i mean, they don't have to be moved very far. >> right. >> because these assets have a tremendous reach. but in addition, there's lots of other assets in other places that can quickly come in, reinforce, use land based areas and continue the fight. we have a reach from the continental united states with certain fast assets assets nonnuclear that will reach from platforms like diego garcia with long-range aviation and used in afghanistan and lots of things to c
there is ongoing investigation and more details will come out after it wraps up. we learned yesterday not one fbi agent has stepped foot in fwauz gauze in the 17 days since the attack because things are too dangerous. u.s. officials internally labeled the deadly raid on the consulate within a day so they could unlook military force it fight the terrorists. administration is stalled and defending their decision to initially deny what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack with press secretary jay carney saying yesterday every step of the way the information that we have provided to you and the general public about the attack in benghazi has been based on the best intelligence we've had and the assessments of our intelligence community. carney also told reporters even though the president still not publicly called this a terrorist attack, since he is are obama's spokesman, and he gave it that label we should all know what the commander-in-chief thinks it was. bill: so now we're hearing from democrats who demand answers from the administration. what are they saying, peter? >> reporter: 10 democ
